Literally. And figuratively, too.
A friend sent a link to this column by Doug Glanville, a smart, insightful guy. His points (including some about chronic illness in the family) are clear and ought to resonate with anyone working the dementia terrain. They did with me. I thought they'd be a nice relief from all the Zen and Hebrew Bible I've been churning here. Though just among us, I think Glanville's sort of a Zen man, too.
At any rate, enjoy.
